It’s Big Band week on The X Factor – a chance for the remaining acts to showcase their stage presence when accompanied by (you guessed it) by a 30-piece orchestra.
With the X Factor final just two weeks away, Simon Cowell’s Girls, Louis Tomlinson’s Boys, Ayda Williams’ Overs and husband Robbie’s Groups – who for a second week running will be overseen by Nile Rodgers – will belt out some of music’s biggest numbers in a bid to survive another week.
With another two acts due to be eliminated from the remaining eight – and several contestants reportedly suffering from flu – the stakes are high. Could Robbie or Ayda lose their final remaining acts…?
Here’s what the contestants will be singing:
Bella Penfold – Strong by London Grammar (w/ original rap)
Scarlett Lee – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You by Frankie Valli
Shan Ako – Summertime by Billie Holiday
Anthony Russell – Beyond the Sea by Bobby Darin
Brendan Murray – Say Something by A Great Big World
Dalton Harris – Listen by Beyonce
Acacia & Aaliyah – Original song ‘Act Our Age’
Danny Tetley – My Way by Frank Sinatra
